Recently I was riding close to - But not with - A really fit body builder guy who was riding a Hoopdie-Do carbon specialized - This guy was young and built like an inverted pyramid - But small legs - I was getting ready for my slow enduring charge up to lookout point in the local state park and as I got up off my seat into my crawl position I heard him yell out "Race to the TOP..." - I charged on my small ring up front and my trusty 34 tooth in back hands on top of my brakes and then heard him running past me with his bike on his right shoulder straight to the top and NO SHAME SHOWN...

Lesson learned - If yo feel bad about walking up the hill then don't walk - Pick up your bike and sprint...

Just a thought...
